The MUGEN Archive of trainers
I was looking up Sonic Forces cheats and found an article on a Wordpress gaming news blog (that didn't even change the Wordpress tab icon even though they had a custom URL pft) shilling this site, I came to Trustpilot to see if it was legit and saw the negative reviews and was downright appalled by the attitude of the people owning the site.
Half the time they were unprofessional and the other half they were professional but not properly addressing complaints and/or accusing people with legitimate complaints of lying. They even reported and successfully censored someone's review (which made me dubious of Trustpilot's reputation and was later validated by negative reviews here on this site)
Frankly I for one believe they are stealing code, they're doing basically almost everything else MUGEN Archive's staff does (that is to say, MUGEN Archive is profiting off MUGEN characters that don't belong to them that are available for free elsewhere (barring some super janky characters) without permission).
As someone who uses Cheat Happens frequently, and for 6 years now, I am very impressed with their services. For a single one-off lifetime membership fee, I'm given access to all of their trainer software they've ever made, or will ever make which really is a bargain.
Trainer software is software that hooks into a game in the computer's memory and modifies certain things about it, like for example, gives you invincibility, kinda like a cheat code. This action of hooking into games in the computer's memory often causes a virus scanner response - because some viruses can do similar things - however a trainer is not a virus, nor is it anything like a virus other than its ability to modify specific items in memory, it is merely a program that helps people play games easier, or to modify certain aspects of that game to suit their needs.
Cheat Happens has been around for many, many years and would not exist if they were not legitimate. Most of the reviews here stating there is malware are merely false positives and nothing actually dangerous.
As for the site, the staff are very attentive to users' needs, often fixing issues with the trainer software within minutes of problems being reported, engaging the community in problem-solving and helping people run their software who are otherwise unable to. I use Cheat Happens' trainers to make beating games quicker as my health is fickle and I have a long backlog of games I would like to complete. Without Cheat Happens I would not enjoy playing video games even half as much as I do.
This website is trustworty as the software they provide, been there for more than ten years, the only problem some have is the false positives their anti-virus wrongly detect, I'm an ex programmer/analyst and never found any malware(s) in their work.
There are no viruses or malware on this site. As others above have said, trainers are sometimes alerted on by anti-virus apps as false positives. Don't listen to heresay, check sites such as www.virustotal.com where Cheathappens is rated SAFE by most all of the major anti-virus programs on the market. I've been a Lifetime member over 10 years and have not once seen anybody get an actual virus or any malware at all. Simply not true. They have PC game trainers that work. Period. It's a pay site because they have a small staff of full time professionals that must be paid. Great site for PC gamers.
If you still have concerns, submit the trainer to your anti-virus company. Tell them you think it's a false positive and ask them to check it. They're 100% safe, folks. If you don't use them, the only one that misses out is you.
I have used cheathappens for many years since 2008. They have provided a great service, their customer service on issues with their products is good. Even with the help from the community to fix any errors to. The community there is very good and friendly with many debates on certain things. The owners listen to the community with idea's and such even when updating the site to. Even with ideas to advertise and help clear out the fakers that taken advantage of people. If you are wanting to be able to play a game your way that is not going to effect other gamers e.g. single player only. Then Cheathappens is the place to go
When You search this site and find some file, page will tell You that You need to be registered in order to download. When You registered and try download, page asks You to upgrade Your account, and of course, pay.
the site is unsuitable for anyone who does not want to be ripped off...
the trainers are not worth the money they are asking, besides which paying for trainers is paying to cheat, which is illegal.
morally and legally the site should not exist.
I used this site for one trainer. I did not get any viruses but now I am deciding whether or not my computer fucking hates me now. I've (now) done a shit ton of research and according to all of it most of what this site gives you is a virus. But that's not all; they want your money as well. I'm glad the gamersgomakers trainer didn't fuck my computer up (or atleast I think so), because now I'm cautious whenever this site comes up.
Don't go this site if you are looking to cheat in a game, instead, get cheat engine, it's a little hard to use, but it's more reliable than cheathappens!
Asking customers to sign up for a free acccount, then not providing anything useful to me unless I "upgrade" to account for money is a pretty fucked up way to treat customers. You just lost me as your customer.
Ce site redirige vers encore d'autres sites ou leurs liens sont soit infectés (et en plus leurs "trainers" ne fonctionnent pas !) soit réclament un mot de passe,mot de passe obtenable en payant en achetant un gadget à la gomme pour portable qui coûte un rein...Je déconseille ce site !
If you ever need assistance on their website be prepared for cocky responses, They have no idea what good customer service is and will happily ban you from their site if you disagree with them! If you are the first to report a problem they will tell you that basically no one else has reported it so it is you problem but when other start to report they do something but you will get no sorry from them! others have also had major problems with this site and their disgusting customer service, Here is just one review from another customer
"I have no plans to restore your account. If you can tell me the precise day you plan on dying then I can prorate your lifetime membership fee to that date and refund it."
such a shame as some of their trainers are good but their pathetic cocky attitude ruins it all!
Recently a number of their trainers stopped working/crashing on startup, when they had worked previously. Their response, involving "refactoring" of the trainers, basically said "The product we in effect sold you is broken. Sorry." with no hint of a solution in the future.
